Been a lot of international play focused on the Quotable Poet through social media lately. Trending hashtags with quotes by him include the net-wide Push Awards plus 2 big soap operas out’a Philippines: the AlDub phenom from Eat Bulaga! and On the Wings of Love.
But that’s not everything. He’s been making headlines, as in his quotes forming the headlines, for some serious news stories coming out of Australia. At any other time this would be typical. So why not now?
The answer’s because the Quotable Poet announced 2 big moves: the first was taking his CTI Initiative offline, which some of us predicted was bound to happen after the network ownership switched hands. The second is because he called break-time on his cultural arts Examiner column for AXS Entertainment. Can’t say we saw that one coming!
But hey, he’s been talking about major works in progress for a long time and the only way to complete projects like serious books and plays on that level (SERIOUSLY) is to scale everything else down. So good! Now we know we got some new reads to look forward to.
For right now though the international scene is HOT mostly from fans of AlDub and the Eat Bulaga! TV show, starring Alden Richards and Maine Mendozo (as Yaya Dub), using QP quotes to push favorite episodes on Twitter. Once AlDub started the ball rolling then On The Wings of Love picked up on the follow-up.
If the happenings in the Philippines and Australia wasn’t enough UK novelist Rosy Cole reposted her book review of the QP’s Bridge of Silver Wings (aka The River of Winged Dreams). It’s one of the best full-length reviews of his poetry you’re gonna find so give yourself a good time and enjoy.
